    If I were reading, "Of Mice and Men" in 1938 as an American, what would my response be to how Crooks is portrayed in terms of race, class and age?

    Hello Im a yr 13 student who did Of Mice and men 2 years ago
    Well it depends 'in which pair of shoes' you were in. For instance, if you were reading the book as a white male (or female for that matter) then you would respond to Crooks in a negative way to be typical. If you were a black person then you would respond to Crooks in a sympathetic way. Its the same with class.

    Im not really sure about age though to be truthful

    Hope this helps
